Are you an artist in need of studio space?  Does your dog have more paint on him than you do?  Have you even seen your dining room table lately?  Can your current studio qualify for an episode of "Hoarders?"

Have we got a deal for you!  We know a guy  (really, we do!) that has studio space available in our building.  We'd love to have you join us at the Studio at 701 Sawdust.  

Just contact Tom LaRock (email him at  Tom@tomlarockart.com ) for further information or a tour of what is available.

How to get to the New WAL Facility at 701 Sawdust Rd! 

If you are looking at Hobby Lobby, look to the right to see a strip center across the way.  Look to the left of that and see a blue and silver building.  Then look further to the left and see a silver two-story building.  WAL is in that silver building, and our entrance is on the right side of the building.  We are open for classes, workshops, and other events.  

How to Help WAL With (Almost) No Effort

Did you know that many retailers offer programs that will donate portions of your purchase to non-profit organizations like WAL?  Amazon Smile, for example, is one such program.  If you're going to order something, please consider making the Woodlands Art League your charity of choice.  Ask your retailer if they have such a program and how you can sing up to support the Woodlands Art League.

Art washes away from the soul

the dust of everyday life.

The Monday Morning Portrait Group

The Monday Portrait Paintgroup is meeting         every week at the WAL Studio,

701 Sawdust Rd. The Woodlands, 77380

We begin at 9:30 AM and finish at 12:30 PM.    We paint from a live model, in long pose (with breaks).


If you are vaccinated against COVID, we can be mask optional.   Also, be aware that some of our members are sensitive to noxious chemicals.  Be aware of that when you bring your set-up.

There will be a small model fee collected at that time from each participant.  


ART FOR EVERYONE!









Woodlands Area Art Trading Cards Group

Create, Trade, and Collect!

We want to let you know that ATC has

gone postal!

Art Trading Cards are tiny gems - 2-1/2" X3-1/2" - that you make  and trade with others. Any medium can be used, paints, collage, fabrics and more as long as they can fit into a standard trading card pocket. Create some to trade on the spot, or bring some with you in any state of completion. 

As we are a small group, each person creates 2 cards for each member per month.  We mail them out to each other at the beginning of the month.  Everyone has the option of doing what they want, but we often agree on a topic for at least one of the cards.

What you do is up to you!  Creativity is worth sharing and this is a perfect way to not only share your art, but get others' art in return.  What a fun way to introduce yourself to new artist-friends!

This group is sponsored for the community by the  Woodlands Art League. There is no charge and membership is not required. Adults and older teens with parent are welcome. Bring a friend or two!

For more info contact group leader,

Teri Valentine, at terilynn248@aol.com
